        You forgot to put down Tom's birthday as the same day as Navy's. Remember, they were twins.

          Ah-HaH! found the timeline! How about Whalestoe-related dates? I don't think there's an exact date of when it was shut down... P503 - July 1, 1998: Much to my surprise it was dead. Closed in April over 5 years ago.

          So in April 1993 the Whalestoe had already ceased to exist, but that's all I have.
